Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline alliance, has partnered with Skyscanner, the world’s travel search engine, to allow travellers visiting the Star Alliance website to search for flights, view airfares and book them directly with its member airlines. Member airline of Star Alliance has been for nearly 15 years also the Slovenian Adria Airways.
This feature, easily accessible alongside the popular lounge finder, flight status and other journey-related services, utilises Skyscanner’s fare search, linking directly to the alliance’s website, which complements the individual websites of its 28 member airlines, in nine languages, has simultaneously undergone a major makeover. The overall layout is more user-friendly and provides shorter paths to its most popular features across both desktop and mobile devices.
With more than 18,800 daily flights to over 1,300 airport destinations in 193 countries, the alliance now offers coverage to 98% of the world. The new capabilities also allow customers to find global connections that best meet their travel needs.
The new website search capability is one of several digital initiatives the alliance is developing with its member carriers to place capabilities in the hands of its customers through application of leading-edge technologies. These include services such as interline baggage tracking, interline seat assignment at time of reservation, lounge and Gold Track security locations (a Star Alliance product which offers eligible customers priority at security checks at around 150 airports), and frequent flyer membership number validation.
